Officials say they'll be assessing the cost to infrastructure damaged by heavy rainfall in the province.
The KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Services' Robert McKenzie says: "Unfortunately this is always something that occurs when we have these disasters. Disaster management will be assessing this."
Meanwhile, officials say they're on high alert and on standby especially in low-lying areas including Alexandra and Diepsloot.
In the Western Cape, the Eden District Disaster Unit's Gerhard Otto says the cold front seems to have moved over the Southern Cape without any incidents.
"We experienced some rain last night but most of this moved off shore around Stilbaai so most of the region was not affected."
